How do i access jira API via node.js?

Can anyone please help me?? 

At the moment i am using the following node.js modules to access the Jira Api


My Code-----------------------------------------------


var JiraApi = require('jira-client');

// Initializevar jira = new JiraApi({

protocol: 'https',

host: '',

username: 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxx',

password: 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx',

apiVersion: '2',

strictSSL: true});

// ES5// We are using an ES5 Polyfill for Promise support. Please note that if you don't explicitly// apply a catch exceptions will get swallowed. Read up on ES6 Promises for further details.

jira.findIssue(issueNumber).then(function(issue) {

console.log('Status: ' +;})

.catch(function(err) { console.error(err);});



I am sure it is the right details, but i keep getting the following error :


ReferenceError: issueNumber is not defined
at Object.<anonymous> (C:\xxxxxx\xxxxxx\xxxxxxxx\node_modules\index.j


Is it not suppose to get the issue number automatically from the api ? Anyone help please
